Torture? Murder? Is This The America We Want in the World?


Treatment of Detainees No Different Than the Worst of Totalitarian Dictators. Do We Need to Do This?

Reality Commemorating America

I saw the article quoted below on CNN this morning. It’s been no surprise to me and the image above is something I wanted to point out since the postage rate was 37 cents back in the Bush Administration:

Washington (CNN) — New documents obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union show “unjustified homicide” of detainees and concerns about the condition of confinement in U.S.-run prisons in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay, according to the ACLU.
Thousands of documents detailing the deaths of 190 U.S. detainees were released by the ACLU on Friday. The U.S. military gave the ACLU the documents earlier in the week as a result of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed by the rights group.
Among the documents are autopsy reports and military investigations, including 25 to 30 cases the ACLU says it believes are “unjustified homicide.” Some of the homicides in the documents are widely known and have been reported in the media, such as the case of four Iraqi detainees executed by a group of U.S. soldiers and then pushed into a Baghdad canal in 2007.

Okay. That says “homicide”! Enough already. President Obama has not changed anything in this regard from the Bush Administration. Do you think the guy you voted for won the election? I’m not so sure. I wrote the article at the link below a year after his inauguration. Things have only gotten worse.

What if Obama Had Won the Election?

    Joe,
    Repeat after me, “They hate us for our freedoms, they hate us for our freedoms. Watch FOX news, watch Fox news. We are there to spread democracy, we are there to spread democracy.

    See it’s easy. Don’t worry about it and pay your taxes like a good boy.

    This is a great disappointment of this administration. I still believe we are supposed to be a nation of laws not men. The one place where I can hear “no, we won’t.” Lots not the right time political excuses. Being a card carrying ACLU member, I hope they can sue.
